Yes, please add this feature! Also the step back over a repeat command like ldir/otir should be done in one go.

I posted a more elaborate reply on the ticket.
Summary: I 100% agree it would be a useful feature. Unfortunately it's not easy to implement (with acceptable performance).

Ok, thanks a lot for the quick reply. It is of course often like this --a seemingly small task... which in reality is complex and lengthy!

What about an auto-keep-pressing option until the debugger:
1. hits a breakpoint
-or-
2. the current instruction changes the PC for more than 3 or so? This wil avoid push en pops, but will stop on a jr, jp, call, ret etc.
